_ is a special character for TeX. You can change this behaviour globally with
\nonknuthmode or you can escape the _ locally by using the backslash.

  \nonknuthmode
  \starttext
  \placeindex
  Hello\index{huhu}
  \stoptext

or

  \starttext
  \placeindex
  Hello\index{_huhu}
  \stoptext

both work for me.
